Federal work-study funds are available to students who indicate that they are interested in work-study on their FAFSA AND who have federally defined student need. Federally defined student need is determined in part by the FAFSA at the point of awarding.
Work-study funds are government funded and funding-dependent. As such, not every student who applies or who qualifies for work-study will be awarded work-study. Students who are not initially awarded work-study may place themselves on the waitlist by contacting the Financial Aid Office at email@example.com.
To receive work-study the student must:
- Complete a FAFSA and submit any requested documentation to the Financial Aid Office.
- Be awarded work-study (the student will receive an award letter letting them know if they qualify).
- Apply for a work-study position (Application is available below, generally at the beginning of July for the upcoming aid year).
- Receive an email confirmation from our office that they have been assigned to a work-study position.
Once the student receives this confirmation they must bring the following documentation with them to the financial aid office during the 1st week of class:
- Government issued photo ID AND
- Social security card
If the documentation listed above is not available please contact the financial aid office for alternative documentation requirements.
